Hi, is there an easy way to find out a individual users access permissions?

I've walked into a job, and the previous IT staff did not do things by the
book, and instead of assigning folder access by groups, they have done it by
individuals.

aside of going through each folder on a server and seeing who has access,
i'm not sure if there is a inbuilt feature in 2003 server which i can use to
see where the user is authorised to access...if it make life easier...it's a
soon to be "leaving" employee, and i would like to tidy up any access rights
before the deed is done.

TIA

Hi Fred,

Try Permission Analyzer. It scans a set of directories and enumerates
access rights per user or group.
